Lawn and Garden Battery by Autocraft.

These small engine lawn and garden batteries by Autocraft are a cost effective solution to your aging lawn tractor battery. These batteries are almost maintenance free. 300 cold cranking amps should make starting quicker and put less a strain on your starter. These batteries are fully charged and ready to be installed right from the store. A fresh battery will put less a strain on your entire electrical system. They are designed to prevent internal shorts from all the harsh vibrations and rough conditions presented by lawn and garden equipment.
You may want to purchase a small packet of battery terminal protector for use when you install your new battery.
I have also used these batteries in simple low amp hour appliances as a backup or replacement.

            I bought this battery in September 2013 toward the end of my mowing season, and all was well. It worked fine for the 2014 season, but after a few cuts in the spring of 2015, it stopped holding a charge. I got barely more than one season on this battery. I guess that explains why it has a 3 month warranty. Would not buy again, would not recommend.

                  I bought this w/o my husband's approval. I removed the old one out of the mower and installed this one with NO problems. My mower now gets more gas hours than when I was having to jump start the old battery. I am just sorry that I waited a whole year to purchase a new battery!! And I proved to my husband that I can do a little bit with engines on my own. He kept telling me he needed to check the mower because it might not be the battery but something else that made me have to jump start it. Especially after it quit jump starting. Then he said it was the battery charger that was bad. I had half the yard cleared of leaves in an hour and half after purchase and install. And we have a lot of yard to clear!!!

The store employees in my local store are very helpful and very easy to talk with. Battery starts all the time every time. Seems well made as far as I can tell.

                              Hi Bill! The battery is a maintenance free battery; it does have the caps on the top but it is not designed to be opened to "maintain" it. If the fluid level is low due to lost acid, or damage water should not be added because the electrolyte levels will be unbalanced.

                              I'm happy to help, Rich! This Autocraft Lawn & Garden 12-Volt Small Engine Maintenance-Free Battery (Part No. U1-3) has an amp hour rating of 12.5 at 25 amps. This battery is intended for starting purposes and is not typically rated for amp hours. AdvanceAutoParts.com may carry a battery that may better suit your needs. If you could please provide some details of your intended use, we may be able to help you select a battery best suited for your purposes.

                              Hi Frankie, To ensure that you are replacing your battery with one that is exactly the same as what is coming out of your Toro Zero turn time cutter, please provide the Part No. off the battery and we can cross reference your battery to a compatible one.
